Separate handsets for movements / heat and massage.
Pros ( What I liked about it )
The dual motor is a great feature because it means you can independently either lift up the foot rest or recline the chair back, as you don’t often want to move them both at the same time.
The foot rest rises to an almost vertical position which when incorporated with the recline function, puts you in a perfect comfortable snooze position to relax.
The chair is really comfortable particularly the back support which moulds around your neck and shoulders.
Side pocket is handy for storage – it’s a good height when you reach down to the side of the chair to put handset in. Without the pocket it tends to get in the way on the chair you’re sitting on, or falls on the floor, which can be difficult to pick up for some people.
A separate handset controls the 8 point vibration massager (2 on the upper back / shoulders, 2 on the lumbar, 2 on the seat, and 2 on the leg).
The heated massage function I found quite relaxing although I am not sure what therapeutic value you will get from it.
Smooth and quiet operation with a distinct lift, rest and recline action.
Simple to operate handset with 4 button controls.
The chair is really easy to assemble and takes about 15 minutes to set up and start working. The back piece is separate to the main body of the chair.
Cons ( What I didn't like about it )
When fully reclined the chair is 67″ long, so you will need a fair amount of space, and position it away from the wall to avoid accidentally hitting the wall when reclining. However, this applies to a lot of riser recliner chairs.
Although thebonded leather of the chair isdurableif handled well, it is best off positioned away from direct sunlight from windows or skylights, as the leather is vulnerable to fading.
I’m not sure it is a negative, because the chair performs really well but it is quite expensive and depending on your budget you may find it’s out of your price range.
If you don’t really need the heat and massage extras, then you could find a cheaper version chair.

Lovely looking chair and very comfortable for 90 year old mother-in-law. She loves it! Simple to assemble although not for a frail old lady. Instructions rather brief, but not too much to go wrong.
As good as it was advertised. Very comfortable. I have had cheaper but are they as good?
If however you are on a budget and you want everything that the Canterbury Dual Motor Electric Leather Riser Recliner Chair offers, but cheaper, then there are other riser recliner chairs available. The Hainworth Dual Motor Riser Recliner Chair. is well worth checking out.
